This directory of cyclotron facilities used for the production of radionuclides in Member States is an update of the one published by the IAEA in 2002 and includes most of the cyclotrons in the world that are used at least partially for radionuclide production. There are 262 entries for cyclotrons operating in 39 Member States of the IAEA. This is an increase of 7% on the 246 reported in the 2002 cyclotron directory. This can be compared to the 350 or so cyclotrons believed to be currently operating in the world which are involved in some aspects of radionuclide production. The increase in the number of cyclotrons in both developed and developing countries has been driven by several factors, including: the advent of advances in medical imaging, introduction of compact, user friendly medical cyclotrons, and a recent decision that costs for 15O-oxygen position emission tomography (PET) studies in Japan and 18F-FDG PET studies in Germany and the United States of America are eligible for reimbursement by government or health insurance companies. This directory will help decision makers and specialists in Member States to draft mid and long term strategies regarding the implementation of cyclotron technology for radioisotope production and their medical applications.
